Dirk Serries played a 1956 Höfner 457/S/E1 archtop guitar, in an alternative tuning (on II) and a 1952 Höfner 459 archtop guitar (III).

Performed, recorded, mixed and mastered at the Sunny Side Inc. Studio, Anderlecht (Belgium) on November 7th 2020 (II) and December 12th 2020 (III).

These are mono recordings, using the AEA R44 Anniversary Edition ribbon microphone placed 50cm away from the body of the guitar. One band eq and variable-mu compression was subtly applied across the spectrum to smooth out dynamics. No other audio processing was used.
